European travel recovery is underway despite risks – ETC 2022 Q2 trends and prospects

with Dave Goodger, Tourism Economics and Jennifer Iduh, ETC | Online | June 24, 2022

High inflation, including rising travel costs, and staff shortages are the two major risks threatening the ongoing recovery in European travel in 2022. In this session we will provide an overview of current trends and the outlook for European travel recovery this year. Within this, we will share the likely impacts from these headwinds as well as explaining why we believe these effects will be temporary and won’t derail growth, as well as the likelihood of more adverse outcomes.

Webinar
Is the air travel recovery headed for turbulence?

with Dave Goodger, Tourism Economics, Stephen Rooney, Tourism Economics and Andrew Matters - Economic Advisor to IATA | Online | May 18, 2022

Air travel demand accelerated in early 2022 prompting expectations of a rapid acceleration into the northern hemisphere summer and suggesting that fears of a sharp Omicron-related fall were unfounded. However, concerns in many countries have now shifted towards the impacts of the Russian invasion of Ukraine which we will explore, along with our forecast partners at IATA, in this webinar. We will look at the path for recovery in the rest of the year and beyond as well as major risk factors.

When will Chinese outbound travel return to prominence – and who will benefit?

with Dave Goodger and Michael Shoory | Online | March 16, 2022

Chinese borders remain closed to the majority of inbound and outbound travellers, despite many other borders across the world having re-opened. The restrictions on Chinese outbound travel, in particular, is of importance to the Travel & Tourism sector due to the prominence of China as a source market. Prior to the pandemic, China had grown to become the largest source market for international travel spending and was a major source market for destinations around the globe, especially those elsewhere in Asia-Pacific. This webinar will look at how China’s tighter restrictions may limit the travel recovery for many destinations, when we can expect China to return to its pre-pandemic prominence as a source market, and who will benefit the most once Chinese travellers return. We will also illustrate what would be required for destination recovery from other source markets while Chinese travellers remain absent.

Will overtourism problems return for cities?

with Dave Goodger and Kieran Ferran | Online | February 15, 2022

Prior to the pandemic, overtourism was among the biggest concerns for city destinations. Travel volumes have since fallen sharply but there has also been a clear shift in demand preferences towards more rural or coastal destinations. We will consider the extent to which this may persist in coming years as both leisure and business travel recovers and the implications for major city destinations.

European tourism recovery to continue apace in 2022 – ETC 2021 Q4 trends and prospects

with Dave Goodger and Adam Sacks | Online | January 27, 2022

Cross-border travel recovery has stalled during winter months following the re-imposition of some travel restrictions and lockdown measures following the emergence of the Omicron variant. However, restrictions are not as limiting as in previous waves and will also be lifted sooner to allow a resumption of travel growth. In this webinar we will explore the latest data and travel trends, including prospects for the resumption of intra-European and long-haul travel with a focus on the expected importance of transatlantic travel for various destinations in coming years.
